QR code (abbreviated from Quick Response Code) is the trademark for a type of matrix barcode (or two-dimensional barcode) first designed for the automotive industry in Japan; a barcode is an optically machine-readable label that is attached to an item and that records information related to that item: The information encoded by a QR code may be made up of four standardized types (“modes”) of data (numeric, alphanumeric, byte / binary, Kanji) or, through supported extensions, virtually any type of data. - Wikipedia.
Today I found a nice library which helps to create and read the QR code, - ZXing.net is a port of ZXing, an open-source, multi-format 1D/2D barcode image processing library originally implemented in Java. You can find more details and source code from the codeplex website.
You can install ZXing.Net using Package Manager console.
You can generate QR code using following code
You can find details about the Barcode Contents from here. And you can read / decode the QR code using following code.
Here is the QR code generated using the code
